the Android apps creation tool is no longer being managed by Google. MIT worked up its own version.
Now you can go and log into the MIT App Inventor with valid Google ID.
App Inventor lets you develop applications for Android phones using a web browser and either a connected phone or emulator. The App Inventor servers store your work and help you keep track of your projects.
You build apps by working with:
The App Inventor Designer, where you select the components for your app.
The App Inventor Blocks Editor, where you assemble program blocks that specify how the components should behave. You assemble programs visually, fitting pieces together like pieces of a puzzle.
Your app appears on the phone step-by-step as you add pieces to it, so you can test your work as you build. When you’re done, you can package your app and produce a stand-alone application to install.
It’s calling Google+ Pages. Google+ Pages appears to be little difference between a Page and an individual account.
You’re able to add Pages to any of your regular Circles. Page owners are able to post and take part in Hangouts.
Pages turn up in Google search results. Company’s introduced a new Direct Connect and lets you search specifically for Google+ Pages.
Both features are rolling out starting today.
